Street Photography

En fotografía de calle utilizo diferentes técnicas; como trampantojos visuales, efectos de perspectiva, superposición de planos, que concluyen en yuxtaposiciones surrealistas que transforman la realidad aparente que vemos en imágenes, formas, objetos y personajes inesperados que adquieren un nuevo significado y que cuestionan en el espectador el verdadero primas del mundo que observamos.

Street Photography

In street photography I use different techniques; as visual tricks, perspective effects, superposition of planes, which end in surreal juxtapositions that transform the apparent reality that we see into unexpected images, shapes, objects and characters that acquire a new meaning and question the true cousins of the world that we observe.

AL BORDE DE LO REAL

Texto por: Josep Fábrega Agea. Crítco de Arte y Fotografía. Barcelona 2020.

 Se dice que todo fotógrafo tiene una visión personal de la realidad. Esta visión de la no siempre proviene de un sentido innato de lo estético, lo bello y lo agradable. La determinación de una visión personal es a menudo, la suma de una red intrincada de influencias y de miradas. Cristóbal Carretero Cassinello es hijo del siglo XX, ha vivido el arte pop, el surrealismo, el iconismo, el arte abstracto, la fotografía clásica de los años 60 y 70, los grandes trabajos de fotógrafos de calle de las décadas 80 y 90. Y por último las más avanzadas tendencias en fotografía de calle del siglo XXI.

Carretero conjuga un crisol de estilos fotográficos: minimalista, conceptual y fotografía de calle, bajo un prisma en común, la búsqueda de realidades paralelas que nos revelan nuevos universos y nuevas identidades en la relación del ser humano con su entorno existencial. Sus  fotografías captan, por aislamiento, mundos ocultos en la interrelación de las sombras, del color y de las formas. Mundos propios captados en la más pura y absoluta cotidianidad de mi vida, sin la necesidad de viajar a La Habana o a Bombay para captarlas.

Puede ser el duelo entre un jubilado y su sombra que parece cobrar vida propia, la sorprendente transformación en la cabeza de un pájaro, del pañuelo de una anciana sentada junto al mar ó la fusión de fotografías aparentemente inconexas por medio de dípticos, como el diálogo minimalista de un coche  y la sombra de un palmito que evocan la sabana africana. Otras veces se sitúan en lo mas moderno de la fotografía actual, la fotografía del absurdo, de la yuxtaposición, de la compresión de planos. Barcos que parecen navegar por la tierra, hombres-cono, pamelas con extremidades…sin un solo fotomontaje, sin un solo añadido, sin una mínima preparación de la escena. Sólo con la contemplación detallada y alternativa de lo cotidiano, desde un “background” pop, surreal, abstracto, fresco, icónico y moderno.

Detalles o personas aisladas del contexto real y normalísimo solo con la potencia intelectual del encuadre adecuado, de la trascendencia de la forma hacia su límite onírico y recreador de mundos que aparecen ante el espectador cuestionando la percepción de lo real y del concepto de verdad.  Podemos realizar miles de veces el trayecto de nuestra casa al supermercado y solo nuestra mirada fotográfica vera continuamente la foto evocadora antes de realizarla. En ocasiones decimas de segundo.

ON THE EDGE OF THE REAL

Text by: Josep Fábrega Agea. Criticism of Art and Photography. Barcelona 2020.

Every photographer is said to have a personal view of reality. This vision of not always comes from an innate sense of the aesthetic, the beautiful and the pleasant. Determining a personal vision is often the sum of an intricate network of influences and gazes. Cristóbal Carretero Cassinello is the son of the 20th century, he has experienced pop art, surrealism, iconism, abstract art, classic photography from the 60s and 70s, the great works of street photographers of the 80s and 90s. finally the most advanced trends in street photography of the XXI century.

Carretero combines a melting pot of photographic styles: minimalist, conceptual and street photography, under a common prism, the search for parallel realities that reveal new universes and new identities in the relationship of the human being with his existential environment. His photographs capture, by isolation, worlds hidden in the interrelation of shadows, color and shapes. Own worlds captured in the purest and most absolute daily life, without the need to travel to Havana or Bombay to capture them.

It may be the duel between a retiree and his shadow that seems to take on a life of its own, the surprising transformation in the head of a bird, the handkerchief of an old woman sitting by the sea or the fusion of apparently disconnected photographs through diptychs, such as dialogue minimalist car and the shadow of a heart of palm evoking the African savannah. Other times they are located in the most modern of current photography, the photography of the absurd, of juxtaposition, of plane compression. Boats that seem to navigate the land, cone-men, limber hats … without a single photomontage, without a single addition, without a minimum preparation of the scene. Only with the detailed and alternative contemplation of the everyday, from a pop, surreal, abstract, fresh, iconic and modern background.

Details or people isolated from the real and normal context only with the intellectual power of the appropriate frame, of the transcendence of the form towards its dreamlike and recreating limit of worlds that appear before the viewer questioning the perception of the real and the concept of truth. We can make the journey from our house to the supermarket thousands of times and only our photographic gaze will continuously see the evocative photo before taking it. Sometimes tenths of a second.
